Kim Kardashian and her superstar rapper boyfriend Kanye West are making headlines again, this time with a gift pointing at marriage in the near future.
The love birds are fresh off of appearing at the 2012 BET Awards together - where Kim and Beyonce were reported to ignore each other - and currently in Paris for fashion week. HipHollywood reported that Kanye gave Kim a gold skull statue with white gems. This gift came from lionsandsons.com and he gave a similar one to Jay Z for Father’s Day.
The $34,000 gift was inspired by the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson, who gave this same statue to his dear friend Elizabeth Taylor. Kim is said to have looked up to Elizabeth making the gift more sentimental.
The cost of the gift itself isn’t the reason for marriage speculation, but rather what is actually engraved on the statue to be exact. The initials “KKW” led people to assume marriage is on the cards for the couple, but it could just be a combination of the couple’s names.
A source close to Kanye told HollywoodLife.com: “Kanye wouldn’t be opposed to having a huge TV wedding…He’d do it just to prove his wedding would get way more viewers than Prince William’s wedding.”
Kardashian is still legally married to NBA player Kris Humphries, but that doesn’t stop Kanye. Anything Kanye does is over the top and a statue is just another way to profess his love to Kim.
Kim Kardashian and her superstar rapper boyfriend Kanye West are making headlines again, this time with a gift pointing at marriage in the near future.
Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé seemed to be getting friendly whilst supporting their men from the side of the stage at the Watch The Throne tour earlier this month, but it seems their body language at the BET Awards told a very different story.
Once again, the ladies put their own merits aside to accompany Jay-Z and Kanye West at The Shine Auditorium festivities held against the backdrop of Tinseltown city Los Angeles, California. The foursome were seated on the front row together, with the boys taking the middle two seats and chatting and laughing together.
Beyonce and Kim were placed on the outer seats and made no effort to stretch across to talk to one another, and at times both seemed somewhat bored.
Reality TV queen Kim looked rather unimpressed that she was perched on the end and ended up befriending another famous lady for her Kodak moment - Nicki Minaj. The 31-year-old, who stepped out in an unzipped backless cream dress, appeared so out of her depth that she ended up tweeting from the event about Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
During the ceremony, the curvaceous beauty wrote: ‘Mason is so cute on the beach in DR #KUWTK. East coast turn to E NOW!!!!! Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s is on!!!!!! who’s excited?’
Kim and Kanye also chose not to walk the red carpet prior to the ceremony. Perhaps Beyoncé, who looked ravishing in a thigh-slashed lime green satin gown, intentionally avoided being overly friendly with Kim after her fans reportedly were ‘outraged’ by recent pics of the two together.
A source told Radar: ‘Beyoncé tries to stay out of the tabloids, while they’re Kim’s livelihood.’
Another insider told the New York Daily News that Kim is being strategic in gaining Beyoncé’s trust: ‘She’s hung with them a few times already, but she isn’t saying peep about them. She’s not tweeting or taking pictures with Beyoncé because she doesn’t want to seem desperate.’
Either way, both couples will no doubt be celebrating by raising a glass of bubbly later as the men were crowned with the prestigious honour of Best Group. While Beyoncé and Jay-Z married in 2008, Kim has only been dating the Gold Digger star since April.
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has revealed that she is a “terrible eater” and “struggles” to maintain a perfectly healthy diet at all times.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s star is famed for showing off her voluptuous curves in a range of skin-tight outfits, but Kim has revealed that she doesn’t deny herself the odd treat or two.
“If I’m at home in the evening, I’m a terrible eater. That’s when I’m most likely to give in to temptation and eat things I know I shouldn’t. I really love Mexican food and pizza, so it’s a bit of a struggle to stay away from it,” she confessed to British magazine more!
“But I try not to deprive myself of the food I love - I just limit the amount.”
Kim is constantly followed around by a camera crew for her reality TV programs, including Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Kourtney and Kim Take New York - in which she stars with her older sister.
The 31-year-old star revealed that she doesn’t mind the fame, but wishes she could have time off always looking super glam: “Not fame itself, but I wouldn’t mind spending the odd day without make-up once in a while. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. I’m very happy with the life I’ve chosen, but I think there’s a balance,” she explained.
Kim Kardashian has revealed that she is “obsessed” with her little nephew, Mason.
The reality TV star is an auntie to two-year-old Mason Dash Disick, her older sister Kourtney’s first child.
Kim frequently posts pictures of the gorgeous little boy on her website, and has gushed that he has lightened up her whole family’s lives. And with Kourtney expecting a little baby girl any day now, Kim is excited about gaining a little niece.
“I love being an aunt. I’m obsessed with my nephew, he’s the best thing that has ever happened to our family,” she told UK TV show Lorraine.
The brunette beauty also spoke about the upcoming new series of successful TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Kim revealed that the show will feature lots of drama, with sister Khloé facing paternity rumours, her mother’s old affair resurfacing and pregnant Kourtney fighting with partner Scott Disick.
“It is the wildest season ever, you are going to love it,” she said, adding that the drama surrounding Khloé’s parentage was traumatic. “Yeah [it was horrible], people were saying she wasn’t really my dad’s daughter so we kind of confront Khloé and say ‘Well, take a DNA test and you’ll know.’”
Kim Kardashian has denied that her marriage to Kris Humphries was a hoax, saying she was left utterly depressed after their break-up, and that her fanbase was strong enough without having to stage drama for ratings.
In a frank interview with Oprah Winfrey, the reality star opened up about the doomed romance, and stressed that she still has a place in her heart for her ex. Kim revealed that it was not until the couple moved in together that it dawned on her that married life was ‘not for me’.
Speaking to the talk show host, Kim said: ‘I was in love, I wanted the life that I always pictured my fairytale life to be. I would’ve had an extravagant wedding anyway, to end that relationship was a risk in itself to lose ratings and I had to take the risk to be honest to myself.’
Kim, who never mentioned Kris by name during the chat, claimed that the problem was that the pair had never spent enough time alone before their 72-day marriage broke down.
She told Oprah: ‘I think when people first meet, everything is great in the beginning, but I didn’t spend more than a whole week with my ex before we married. When we moved in together, I saw how our relationship was… I don’t want to get into the small things, but once we moved in, I knew he was not the one.’
As Oprah quizzed her about her pre-wedding nerves, Kim said: ‘I didn’t have an inkling, but everyone around me did. The night before, mum said, “Do you want out?” She said, “You’re not yourself”. But I said no, I got angry, I was thinking, “How dare you!”’
Kim made it clear that Kris did not do anything specifically wrong, and denied that he hit her or lashed out: ‘He’s a good person. I will always have a place in my heart for him. It just wasn’t for me.’
And while Kim admitted she was ‘bored’ in the romance, she didn’t attribute it as the reason for leaving. She said: ‘You know in your heart. Mum was supportive, so I took that time off afterwards… I would rather have been beaten up in the media than live a life that wasn’t happy.’
She continued: ‘I was in such a deep depression I thought I was going to back away from everything. I stayed at home for almost four months and I’m a better person now, as heartbreaking as it was to go through.’
Kim added: ‘For anyone I hurt, I’m truly sorry, I don’t wish pain on anyone, but the person I am because of that crazy experience, I wouldn’t change it for the world. I loved him, obviously it hurt him, and it hurt me too. It was embarassing, I don’t want to call it a mistake, it was a lesson.’
Oprah also approached the subject of the infamous sex tape during the interview. Kim claimed that the tape ‘introduced her to the world in a negative way’, so she was forced to ‘work ten times harder to get people to see the real me’.
Reality TV Queen Kim Kardashian has made no secret of wanting a family, and it appears as though the star has a plan in place.
Kim revealed her plan on the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The star, who is currently loved up with boyfriend Kanye West - after splitting from hubby Kris Humphries after just 72 days of marriage - could be seen telling sister Kourtney about her plan on the new episode of their show.
Admitting that she would be willing to try IVF in order to have a child of her own if she doesn’t by the age of 40, Kim told Kourtney: “If I’m 40 and not married, I would have a baby artificially inseminated.”
The episode also saw Kourtney and Kim come to blows over Kourtneys’s boyfriend, Scott Disick. Despite asking Scott to spend time with Kim to cheer her up, the pregnant star appeared to become upset when Kim and Scott started to spend more time together.
Having told Kourtney that he was spending the night at Kim’s after a night out, Kourtney could be seen telling her partner that the “party is over”, before berating her sister, saying: “You can find your own boyfriend to go out with because mine is staying in with his pregnant wife and kid.”
There’s never a dull moment in the Kardashian household! What did you think of last night’s episode?
Kim Kardashian tells Oprah Winfrey that her failed 72-day marriage to basketball star Kris Humphries led her to a life changing epiphany.
The reality TV star married Kris in a highly publicised fairytale ceremony last August, but although their union broke down within three months, Kim says she feels she has been a changed person since.
Referring to her sister in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Kim said: “It’s like how Kourtney had this epiphany when she had her baby and she changed into a different person, I feel like I’ve had an epiphany over the last year.
“For what I’ve been through I am that changed person, just from my own experiences.”
Kim, 31, is now dating rapper Kanye West, 35, and said one of the things that attracts her to him is the fact he is older than her.
She added: “I always dated five years younger. My whole thing was completely different, and now I just love that I’m with someone that’s a couple years older than me.”
During the interview, Kim, who is of Armenian descent, says she is proud to represent Middle Eastern women in US society.
When asked by Oprah if she thinks the Kardashians’ reality TV show would be as successful if they weren’t pretty, she replied: “I don’t think it would have happened if we were all skinny pretty models. I think it has to do with us, the curves, the dark hair — I think it was a combination.
Kanye West has landed himself in hot water after tweeting a photo of his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, competely naked!
The megastar rapper posted a photo of the back of a completely naked girl who bares a very similar appearance to Kim – long brunette hair, tiny waist and vulumptuous curves - and if it’s not her, she’s probably going to be even more angry. The photo doesn’t show the girl in question’s face, but if it’s not her, then she could certainly pass for a Kim body double.
Some sites have reported that a furious Kim has demanded that the photos be removed, whilst pornstar Amia Miley, whom many thought could be the girl in the photo, has denied that it’s her.
Amia has said: “Apparently a naked photo of me eating is going viral… as Kim Kardashian… Im confused. Im not going 2 argue about whether that pic is me or not.. want proof? look at the back dimple piercings. Kim K doesn’t have them.”
If he survives the wrath of reality TV Queen Kim, Kanye will continue his Watch the Throne UK tour alongside Jay-Z tonight in Sheffield.
Kanye West UK & Ireland Tour Dates are as follows:
Wed June 13th 2012 - LG Arena, Birmingham
Thu June 21st 2012 - Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield
Fri June 22nd 2012 - LG Arena, Birmingham
Wed June 13th 2012 - LG Arena, Birmingham
Kim Kardashian is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in the world of celebrity at the moment, but is her popularity because of her all-natural talent or a consequence of being born into the Kardashian clan?
The Kardashian relatives might not arrive from skilled origins but they do have an historical past of socialising with other celebs. Kim’s parents, Robert and mom Kris, had been friends with OJ Simpson & Nicole Brown Simpson. In fact, Kim’s Dad, Robert Kardashian, was the attorney for OJ Simpson during his infamous and widely publicised homicide trial after the death of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson.
The divorce of Kim Kardashian's parents did not seem to have a substantial impact on Kim's life, and her mother Kris was later remarried to Bruce Jenner, who also stars in Keeping Up With The Kardashians. He is a well known face as a past Olympic gold medal winner, and now he takes photos for Playgirl magazines.
Kim’s Mother, Kris, manages her career, and is said to be responsible for the millions she has made. Kim’s reputation and celebrity status greatly improved after the Kim Kardashian Sex Tape with Reggie Bush was published.
After it’s release, the video clip quickly appeared on multilple web sites. Kim’s first reaction was to reject she was associated with the sex tape in any way. After a short while, the video clip was rapidly going around the internet and Kim was forced to confess her involvement.
Vivid Entertainment, the company who released the tape, became the focus of a lawsuit against them. Vivid ultimately made a deal with Kim which earned her a staggering five million dollars. It’s hard to say who had the last laugh, as Kim was basically paid for a self-promotional video, which raised her media profile greatly.
Shortly after the video pushed Kim further into the limelight, she featured as the cover page girl of Playboy magazine 2007 December release.
Another interesting fact about Kim Kardashian which helped raise her media profile is that she is a former friend of another Hollywood socialite, Paris Hilton. Paris and Kim were frequently seen together, partying at new nightclubs and hanging out. Eventually the pair’s friendship fizzled out, amid rumors in the media that Paris was envious of Kim.
Another important chapter in Kim’s life was her marriage to Kris Humphries. The basketball star’s union with the reality TV beauty lasted just 72 days and Kris believes that his entire relationship with Kim was staged, and will present proof of this at the former couple’s upcoming deposition in June. Kim fiercely denies that her wedding was a publicity stunt.
Kim is now dating another high profile celeb, rapper Kanye West, and has just splashed out $750,000 on a brand new lamborghini for his Birthday.
There is undoubtedly a lot more to come from Kim, whether it be more business ventures or yet more sex scandals. One thing is for sure, Kim’s certainly made her mark on the world of celebrity.
While most of us buy our partners a thoughful little gift for their Birthday, Kim Kardashian has proved once again that she does’t do things low key!
Kanye West didn’t only celebrate his birthday last week, he celebrated it in grand style. Girlfriend Kim Kardashian gave him a very generous present of a brand new car. And not just any car, but a brand new $750,000 lamborghini!
A source confirmed to E! News that yes, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality TV star paid about $750,000 for Kanye’s lamborghini.
Her best friend, Jonathan Cheban, took to social networking site Twitter to Tweet about the splurge and joked: “Can’t wait for my birthday!”
Kim’s sister, Kourtney Kardashian’s partner, Scott Disick, got in on the action and sent a tweet directed to Jonathan, joking: “I’m sure u will get a nice ecard.”
In addition to the new set of wheels, Kim’s showing her admiration for her man by traveling to Dublin to watch his “Watch the Throne” tour with Jay-Z. The pair have been inseperable since they began dating.
Kim has recently found herself at the centre of yet another sex scandal, although she denies the claims that are being made against her.
Kim Kardashian is at the centre of a sex tape scandal following claims made by convicted fraudster, Jonathan Lee Riches, who has filed 2,600 lawsuits since 2006, that he appeared in a sex tape with the star.
In documents obtained by Radar Online, Jonathan also alleged that he lost his virginity to Kim during a trip to Armenia. It is thought that Jonathan put forward the claims because he wanted to be added as a plaintiff to her case against clothing Giant GAP and The Old Navy.
Jonathan said: “I have been in an intimate relationship with Kim Kardashian since 2001. I lost my virginity to Kim Kardashian on a Virgin Air Flight en route to the Armenian Hilton Hotel.”
In an even more bizarre claim, Jonathan blames Kim for his fraud conviction, adding:m“I spent 125 months in federal prison for credit card fraud and identity theft and Kim Kardashian forced me to do fraud crimes to finance her lavish lifestyle and bankroll her career…”
Alledging to have evidence of his sex tape with Kim, Jonathan added: “I borrowed Ray J’s camcorder and me and Kim Kardashian made 2 sex tapes with her in Gap clothing. I have those 2 tapes and all the photographs secretly saved at a YMCA gym locker in Philadelphia to show as evidence.”
The convicted fraudster also put forward the claim that his life is in danger by saying that Kim has threatened him.
“Kardashian is now threatening my life since I got released from prison on 4/30/12, telling me if I expose our relationship that she is going to get her sister Khloé’s husband, Lamar Odom’s basketball buddies to come hunt me down and stuff basketballs in my throat to shut me up.
“Im so scared, I’m whistleblowing now, because Kim Kardashian should of went to prison for my crimes, I did it all for her.”
Luckily for Kim, the claims made by Jonathan were denied by the judge. There is also no evidence to suggest that Jonathan and Kim had ever met.
When Kim Kardashian is in love, it seems there’s no stopping her.
After a whirlwind marriage - swiftly followed by a divorce - to Kris Humphries, Kim is now getting serious with her new boyfriend, rapper Kanye West. So serious, it seems, that she’s reportedly planning to get a tattoo in his honour.
“Kim and Kanye have been talking about getting tattoos,” a source reavels to HollywoodLife. “Kanye wants Kim to get a ‘K’ to symbolize both of their names. But she might even get ‘KW.”
”Kim has already made a public show of her love for Kanye by wearing earring with his initials, so thank goodness Kim and Kanye share the same first initial – she should definitely stick to Kanye’s ‘K’ idea if she does go ahead with the ink idea, just incase anything goes wrong in the future…”
Now that the new series of Keeping Up With The Kardashian is on air, fans are seeing more of the fallout after the break up of Kim and Kris’ marriage. The Reality star admits that her basketball player ex is angry about the break up, and she says he’s deliberately making it hard for her to get on with her life by dragging out the divorce for as long as possible.
